- First Responses in Solid Tumours Reported.

Aurora inhibitors play a key role in cell duplication and are implicated in both the onset and progression of numerous types of tumour. A lecture focusing on Aurora kinase inhibitors will be presented today by Dr. Bernard Laffranchi during the 20th EORTC-NCI-AACR Symposium "Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics" organised from 21st to 24th October 2008 in Geneva.

"This symposium will be organised in a particularly pragmatic fashion and provides a wide-ranging overview of all data collected with regard to future treatment of patients," underlines Dr. Colotta.

The product at the most advanced stage of development is PHA 739358, a se
